    This could also be Mila Kunis. She was a trained ballerina, so she would likely sympathize with the other dancer’s issues. NP seems too wrapped up in her own world for this – still, could be.

    It has to be either Natalie Portman or Mila Kunis. I would lean towards Kunis as well. Also, that’s very sweet of her!

  3. Juniper says

    The movie is probably Black Swan, but I don’t think this is Natalie Portman.

    So I am going with Mila Kunis as the actress.

  4. ClueMeIn says

    I agree that it’s Natalie. She seems sweet enough to do something like that, but whoever it is, good for her!

      That’s a good one! Totally forgot about that movie. And Emily Blunt already experienced the eating issues when preparing for “The Devil Wears Prada.” Anne Hathaway said in interviews how they would cry to each other because they were literally starving for their roles. So she of all people would be able to sympathize.

      That is a good guess…. all of us guessing Black Swan might be too obvious.
      and the picture Ace added… well the dancer’s pose spells out an E, no?
      You might have nailed it malkatz!

      • Tinkerbell says

        Emily Blunt played a dancer in a modern ballet company and, of course, Matt Damon’s love interest. She did some pretty impressive dancing on-screen a couple of times so would have had to train for that. Nice guess malkatz!

    I think it’s Mila Kunis…Natalie Portman gives off the impression that she is super self involved…I just can’t picture her going out of her way for someone other than herself or her son

    Mila Kunis! She made a point of saying that she’d lost too much weight for the movie. She also seems like a cool chick, not too into herself or her own hype.

  7. Jordan Joelle says

    Makes me think this is an older movie than Black Swan. The post specifies, to this day. Usually, that means something that happened years ago.

    • malkatz says

      You’re forgetting that it takes time to train for, then film, a movie. Usually movies wrap at least three months before the release, and begin filming at least a year beforehand. Additional training would tack on some more time.

    Neve Campbell? She played a dancer in “The Company” from 2003, which featured many dancers from the Joffrey Ballet.

  9. betazors says

    This could be Natalie Portman, but I’d imagine what really went down is that she needed to think of a way, quickly, to get some good press, made this up and fed it to the gossip sites herself. IDK, There is just something about that girl that works my last nerve.

    Mila Kunis seems a lot more likable.

  10. vandra says

    Though a while ago, Zoe Saldana for Center Stage? Or Rosario Dawson for Rent? Wait, is there much dancing in Rent?

  11. DesertGhost says

    Mila, as Ms. Portman seems to forget about the “little people” when she moves on to her next project.

  12. socal13 says

    I think Mila Kunis. If i remember correctly, she was on Punk’d MANY years ago and they did something like faked that a dog was trapped in a sewer and she happened to be walking by and was very empathetic in helping the lady who was speaking Russian. She strikes me as having a kind heart.

  13. ComicalEquation says

    I don’t have a guess, but i think it’s an amazing thing to do. Whoever this is, has my respect.

  14. Mermaid says

    Natalie Portman comes off as having a huge attitude and prefers her men attached. I just can’t see this being her.

    • ILoveGlitter says

      it is possible to dislike someone for their character without it having anything to do with looks. just so you know.

  15. stanton says

    Wynonna Ryder she was also in THE BLACK SWAN. She also does lots of nice things under the radar.

  16. ItsSoColdinTheD says

    Mila Kunis for sure. She is so sweet, pretty, funny and down to earth. I wish her star would rise higher in Hollywood she deserves much bigger and better
